Transforming Global Journalism with Open Data

Jun 32013

Knight International Journalism Fellowship projects are transforming global journalism through the use of data.

Knight Fellows Gustavo Faleiros, Jorge Luis Sierra, Justin Arenstein, Miguel Paz and Mariano Blejman specialize in finding ways to convert raw data into information that's usable by and useful to journalists and citizens.

“Data-driven journalism is opening windows onto previously dark corners and giving people the information they need to understand and take action on the issues they care about,” according to a recent post on Wired's “Innovation Insights” blog.

The blog mentioned four ICFJ Knight projects that use the open data—InfoAmazonia, Periodistas en Riesgo, Africa Open Data, and Open Data Latinoamerica.
